Another great thing about this ice cream recipe is that you don’t need an ice cream maker to make it! Anyone can make it as long as you have a blender or food processor.  Easy peasy.

If you wanted to make this recipe nut free, you can use sunflower butter instead of cashew butter.  You may have to add a little milk to get the mixture super creamy.

It took me a few attempts to make these red cookies.  I originally tried using beet juice, but after the cookies baked, all the red color disappeared.

So I used freeze dried strawberries for this recipe, and they came out great!  These Chocolate Strawberry Cookies are vegan, gluten free and grain free.  I hope you enjoy them.

Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Bites.  I just love this time of year. All my favorite fruits are in season. I made these Vegan and Gluten Free Strawberry Cheesecake Bites the other day and they came out delicious!

They are a super cinch to make, but they look fancy.  These would be the perfect dessert for any summer party.  I love that they are perfectly proportioned.

Just the right bite of sweetness.  I made mine in muffin cups, but you can also just make one big cheesecake if you prefer.

If you also love strawberry desserts, you may also like my Strawberry Creme Truffles or my Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp.

These vegan strawberry cheesecake bites are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  They don’t take much time to whip up at all.  I also think any berry will work in this.

One helpful hint for this recipe: if you buy the cashews in pieces vs whole, they will be much cheaper. 🙂 You could also drizzle a little of my 3 ingredient chocolate over the top of these.  If you do that, then these will have to be stored in the freezer.

Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

Smoothies are great for taking your breakfasts on the go.  This Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie is perfect for that.  I added chia seeds and quinoa flakes to it, so there is good protein and fiber which should keep you full for a long time after.  Did you know that quinoa is actually a complete plant based protein?  That is why I love adding the flakes to my smoothies.  Another breakfast that is great for on the go is overnight oats.  If you haven’t given them a try, I highly suggest you do.   This strawberry shortcake smoothie is vegan and gluten free.  I hope you enjoy it.

I have been buying up all the strawberries since they have been in season.   Then I freeze them so I can enjoy berries all year long.  I cannot justify the price of berries out of season.  Way too much for me.  That is why I stock up and freeze.  If you like smoothies, you may also like this and this.
